Removing the Road Blocks – WEBINAR
Jul 20 2021 @ 1:00 pm – Jul 20 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Removing the Road Blocks – Webinar

4 hours (2 2-hour sessions)

Most managers and executives have a strong preference to have their sales associates participate in face to face negotiations. COVID-19 has created a paradigm shift. Research shows that those who negotiate online are less likely to gain a YES outcome. It’s partially because most negotiations contain two motivations, a cooperative element and a more obvious competitive element. Those mixed emotions often times produce tension. Virtual negotiations escalate the tension at a higher level due to an inability to “read” the person.

The good news is that there are practical steps that can be executed to improve the possibility of getting a YES response for the members of your team. During the workshop tactics which support achieving Winning Negotiations and Getting to Yes more consistently will be shared with the participants. The course content will include but not be limited to the following:

• Challenges to consider when conducting virtual negotiations

• Practical methods for success in a virtual negotiation

• Tactics to Remove Road Blocks associated with online negotiations and turn them into advantages

Instructor: Ron Jones, Adjunct Professor, Marketing and Professional Sales, Cotsakos College of Sales, William Paterson University

Intro to Digital Marketing – Webinar

As a small business owner, you need to know a lot about everything. You are aware that digital marketing is crucial so people can find you and so you can grow your business. But what should you focus on first and foremost? Your website, email marketing, SEO, CPC/Google Ads, video, organic social media, paid social media?  How much time should you spend? What will it cost you? How will you decide where to spend time, money, and resources?  This class breaks down the major types of digital marketing tactics for you. We will cover a lot but won’t go too far into the details/tactics of each because there simply isn’t enough time. (Fortunately, we offer other more specific training classes to help you with that.) This class is your opportunity to ask anything you want about digital marketing, get clarity on obscure topics you’ve heard about, and make informed decisions about what you should learn to do next.
